I forgot to answer the compile question! You can save it as a PDF or Word file. Both work.
I’ve been doing it for a couple of years with all kinds of documents, including my developmental edit reports. Nothing has escaped yet! 😉 You do want to make sure that you’re the only one with access to your Kindle account, though. That might be a way someone else would see it. Otherwise, I wouldn’t worry about it.
Email me anytime if you want help!
I’ve wanted to try downloading to my Kindle, but I’ve been afraid the story might get out into the wild accidentally. I’d love to try your link when I’m ready, and I’ll let you know how it works. I’m writing in Scrivener and I’ll also have to figure out what type of file to put the compile into before uploading. Thank you!
